Mr. liaseail then real a portion of scripture, endtff?red up a fervent and appro priate prayer, after which the choir sang an anthem?" Rejoice in the Lord " Kev Mason Noble then announced the text ?Hebrews X 25?'-Not forsaking 4he assem bling of otirseives together as the manner of some is," which he expounded in an able mm Imf, the effort being a fine display of pulpit j eloquence 1 he following synopsis we give our readers, which, though brief, will convey a sufficient idea of his leading remarks : _ In one of those cities on which Jerusalem ^*?*s built stood tho temple of Solomon Its roof shining like molton silver; its walls of alternate rows of fine cedars and polished marble ; its msgnificent portals with loft} pil 'larson either side; its whole interior? floor, yl's. and roof?OTerlaid with pure gold, and l^fCterspersed with carved figures of cherubim B^and palm trees There it stood in all its f glory, constituting an objeet not mo. e illut trious for its architectural beauty, than it was symbolic of the perfection of Jehovah. The Kev speaker, after describing the msg niticent ceremonies of the Jewish worship, ? tbea proceeded, at considerable length, to' ? answer the question. " What is true worship? ' When the Messiah cam*, this material splen er? the visible glory, the outward pomp aod circumstance of religious wonhip?were des tined to pass away, and give place to the spiritual realities of the new dispensation.

Ia this building. the association have a school numbering one hundred and fifty schol are. and about twenty teachers.

Yesterday, we found the school in full operation?one hundred and ten scholars were present, crowded in the lpwer rooms, and in the largest rooms op-stairs, and a full corps of teachers present. The rooms were furnish ed with rude benches, stools and chairs plaoed wherever a place could be found for them, leaving no room for aisles. After the time for teaching had expired, the school was collected in the lower part of the house ; to seat them the visitors and teachers gave up their seats After calling of the roll, they sang several pieces with an accuracy that would shatce some rebools. Then followed a prayer to whioh the children gave duo atten tion, all reverently kneeling, after which they retired in good order. Tho Rev. Mr. Winnans, the Indian preacher, addressed the parents of the scholars at 4 o'clock We understand that they have preaching there eve y afternoon.

The Board of Aldermen reconsidered their vote, on the night before, upon the bill in fa vor cf John Agnew, of Philadelphia, and passed the same, with an amendment providing that no such tax shall hereafter be imposed upon the Corporation. They al?o pas ed a bill providing that all votes whioh may be rejected by the Judges of Uleotions to-day, shall be reserved, and the reasons for suoh rejections carefully noted.
